I had no idea Superman was originally a villain himself. Wow, my childhood memories have just been shattered.

    There was also the late 80’s early 90’s series The Adventures of Superboy.

    Ashraf, here is a brief article (http://suite101.com/article/the-real-origin-of-superman-a80380) that goes into a little more detail about the villainous Superman.

    As for the infographic, overall nice job by the Brits. The name of the 70s writer who changed Clark Kent from a newspaper to a television reporter was actually Denny O’Neil, however, not Danny. In addition to the job change, Superman’s powers were halved by O’Neil as well, allowing for a character that was no longer quite so god-like. O’Neil is probably better know for his then-controversial work as the writer of Green Lantern, and his long tenure as writer on the Batman family of titles.
